Hello, I am using fsl-image-x11 and would like to know how to add a custom icon for an app I made to the Sato desktop. I am using Qt to build apps and would like to start my program from the desktop rather than from the terminal.

Thanks

Hello everyone, I successfully added an icon to the Sato desktop. I just added a .desktop file for my app (found in /usr/share/applications). I just based my app's .desktop file on the other existing .desktop files on the same directory. I also placed my icon (PNG format, 256px x 256px) in /usr/share/icons. This links also helped: https://developer.gnome.org/integration-guide/stable/desktop-files.html.en and Anatomy of a .desktop File | The Linux Critic

Hope this helps,
